In nature there is always a balance between the opposing forces; pushing-pulling, attraction-repulsion, movement=stasis, change-permanence..... Nature is also to be taken as a whole.
Because of our tendency to choose and to take it in parts we come up with conclusions that don't quite hold. such is the case in this piece.
All nature provides opportunities to realise the truth, its beauty and its healing power; not just the beach. In nature being active and being passive are both acceptable. There are times when the water is turbulant and the sand is pliable. at other times the opposite picture can be seen.
To accept our nature in its wholeness we need to give up the right to choose, which is the same as giving up being judgmental.
